But enought of that. The real question, what would …

One lucky winner in Michigan is waking up this morning with some serious financial stability. Going into Saturday's drawing, the Powerball lottery jackpot sat at $300 million, but when there wasn't a winning ticket that night, it rolled up to $320 million. By Wednesday night, just a couple of hours before the numbers were drawn, the jackpot shot to $337 million. The winning numbers were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56, and the Powerball was 21.
